dc.description.abstractThis thesis articulates the design of a Natatorium through both the use of computational methods of visualization and through traditional methods of representing architectural space and form. Computer visualization is used exploratory method for relationships of light, structure of a roof, to experience. The design as a primary understanding the movement and the defining a spatial for the facility serves as an exploration o f spacial experience analogous to nature; and it intends to evoke the visual sensation of being underwater on a bright sunny day. Within the context of a Natatorium, this thesis explores the relationships of: branched construction to light and shadow; water to an undulating roof form; and swimming and diving to movement. The site selected for this project is based upon a facility currently being planned for the MIT campus.en_US
